Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300 + State Tax. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375 + State Tax.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Noa - 6.5 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 71 lbs -
5/16/21 Based on vets recomendation, Noa's age has been changed to 6 years
Noa is a very handsome, dark yellow, male lab. People tell us how handsome he is when we go out to walk. He was an outside dog who has adjusted very well to living the good life of a beloved indoor member of the family. At the vet he was neutered, had has heartworm treatment and was treated for various mites and fleas from being outside. He finished his bed rest from heartworms and is all better. His ears are black along the outer edges, the vet says it is due to his extreme scratching of outside bugs that he could not get way from. He has scratched the fur off and they have healed up as best they can.
Noa enjoys laying in the sun in the living room and napping on a blanket in the office during the day. When we have to leave, he is crated and cries for a bit then settles down. He loves to go for walks and bumps your arm at 4pm each day to tell you it is time for his dinner and his daily walk.
In the evening likes to sit by the couch as you watch tv or do homework with his head resting on your feet, he is an excellent foot warmer. He does not get on furniture or beds. When it is time for bed he knows his bed is on the floor right next to our bed. Noa is not a lickey kind of dog, but he likes to give the occasional little kiss, maybe, if you deserve it.
He now lets’ new people pet him when out on walks as he used to hide behind me as he was unsure of the world and people. We have a 12 year old son in our home and one older Labrador and he does well with both. Noa would do best in home without really small children as can get really excited sometimes when he wants to play and likes to jump around and he can be growly – not mean it is just talking to you. He likes to get our dog to play and chase him around the furniture if he is feeling spunky. He will need time to adjust in his new home as he can still be startled by loud noises and can be unsure of new things at times.
Noa has a very sweet heart even with all he has been through, with a little time to get used to things and get to love and be loved by you, he will be a loving member of your forever home.
Jeau - 2.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male - 75 lbs -
My name is Jeau and now that I'm settled into my foster home, we think it's start time to look for my forever home. It won't be just any home. It has to be one with very special people who are patient and understanding. I had a rough start in life at a breeder and for the first couple of years, I was not around humans much and mostly kept out in the yard all the time. I didn't know how good it was to sleep in air conditioning at night! So, it takes me a while to warm up. My foster mom tell you about that, but I'm very sweet and look forward to having my forever home. I eat well, take treats gently and am potty trained
From Jeau's foster mom: Jeau is a sweet guy, but very timid. He loves going on a walk and walks well on a leash. However, Jeau likes the same routine. It can be a little scary for him to see people out on walks so we just ask people to let him approch them if he wants. He is very accustomed to our home and somedays shows no anxiety at all but at other times, he can be startled by sudden noises like a door closing too hard. He is crate and house trained, and likes to play with his toys. He mostly ignores other dogs on walks and does well with other foster dogs in our home, eventually becoming comfortable with them and they end up playing together. He spent some time with another foster who had a cat and had no reaction. He enjoyed swimming in the pool and loved hanging on the top step to cool off. He has worked with a trainer and she was able to help move him forward.
Jeau will need a quiet home without young kids. We are looking for someone that understands he is a work in progress and he will need time, patience and consistency to help him gain his confidence. Gaining his trust will likely take multiple meetings. He does much better with new people indoors (especially in our home and with treats!) and it is very slow to warm up to people when he is outside of the home. He has come a long way since we brought him home, but it will take loving patience and time for this sweet guy to be the dog he was meant to be. If you have the time and the heart to adopt a guy like Jeau, he will become a great companion and angel for you.
Becker - 5.4 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 73 lbs -
Becker is a beautiful, big chocolate male who just arrived into his foster home. At his age, he is still playful with his two foster Lab siblings but is also OK just hanging around the house. He walks well on a leash and loves to ride in the car. He loves people, young and older children, and enjoys being close by. Older children or being in a home without children is best for Becker as the noise and unpredicable movement of small kids can stress him out. He is respectful but just will do better in a home where he is less stressed. Becker is not good with cats or very small animals in the home.
Becker is a handsome and loving companion that will do well in the right home.
Maxa - 8.7 Year Old Male

Drum Roll Please!
Tilley - 2.7 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 64 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Late July
Tilley has recently joined us in a foster home. She is dog number 5 in the house and fitting in nicely. Before coming to DFW Lab Rescue she lived her life outside in a kennel. Living indoors is quickly growing on her and she has figured out that she likes the AC and that all her business needs to be done outdoors. She will use the dog door and understands that the pool is one large water dish and a great place to cool off on a hot afternoon. Toys appear to be something new to Tilley and she loves to check out the toy box finding the ones that still squeak. Tilley has not been destructive at all and after a few nights of sleeping in the kennel, has earned a dog bed at night. Saving the kennel for when we humans leave the house. Overall she is a very quiet natured girl that loves to follow us around the yard or the house. Since she was an outside dog, she has not developed a habit of counter surfing but is interested in what the humans are eating begging only with her eyes. This girl will make one lucky adopter a great companion and should be available for adoption soon. Please let Adoptions know if you would like her added to your want list.
Rilie - 2.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 87 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Late July
Hi there, it's Rilie. Just in case you didn’t notice from the pictures I’m a big hunk of a guy. Don’t let that fool you though because I’m very sweet and affectionate. Truth be told, I have two and a half years of petting to make up for! I’m learning a lot and being exposed to so many new things. For instance, I did not have toys so I’m just figuring out how fun they can be and also started to enjoy playing with Marco who’s just as tall but in way better shape. Walks are also on my favorite list now. There’s so much to see and I enjoy the exercise.
I’ve adapted very quickly to living in a home which was easy because I’ve always been very well behaved. I was curious and tried to enjoy the pool in the backyard on my first day. The first place I went in was the sun deck. Luv it! What I didn’t know is other sides of the pool don’t have this shallow area. Yep, I took a nosedive! Completely down so much that it felt like I could have touched the bottom. I also showed my fosters I can be a great chill guy and be good around anyone. As for the crate thing, I’m okay as long as the door is open for me to come and go as I please. I really don’t see the need. I don’t get into anything I shouldn’t. But there was this one day my foster brought brisket home. I’ve never smelled anything so wonderful. I had to sniff the countertop where it was but know better than try to help myself.
I’m ready to start the best years of my best life! If I sound like someone that could fit in your family come meet me!
Rizzo - 9.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information:Chocolate Feamle 53 lbs -
Introducing Rizzo! A sweet, gentle girl with a curious nature and a companion heart. She has good house manners that make her a joy to be with. She does not need to be crated when I leave and sleeps by my bed at night. She politely takes treats and is not a jumper, although she may dance a little with excitement. It’s quite cute to see her little wiggle dance!
Rizzo had a few hard breaks in life that caused her to lose an eye and several teeth, but that doesn’t stop her. It seem that Rizzo has never met a stranger and immediately calmly greets my guests. One of her favorite things is to explore her yard, where she keeps us all safe from bunnies and squirrels. She’s earned her nickname, Busy Rizzy! She’s active during the day when I’m active, but settles quickly and is a faithful companion while I work from home. She patiently waits for the end of my workday. Then we’re off doing things before dinner … errands in the car, visiting with friends, or general house and yard work.
While she doesn’t let her blind side faze her, it would probably be best not to have very young children around her who may not know how to be gentle with her face. And dogs who like to wrestle would not be a good home companion for Rizzo for the same reason. Rizzo has enjoyed walking side-by-side with other dogs, so calm companions would be welcome. Rizzo is working on learning commands like Sit and Stay and would appreciate a family who will continue her training.
Grifin - 1.7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Black Male 65.2 lbs -
Catalina - 8.7 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Black Female 52 lbs -
Catalina is a sweetheart with the most gorgeous eyes. She loves to cuddle and always gives us lots of kisses. She also enjoys playing with stuffed animals and running around the house with them. Catalina walks well on the leash and can benefit from going on two long walks a day since she is still an energetic puppy. With that being said, we would love for her to be with someone who will be willing to give her attention and play with her for a few hours a day. She is crate trained at night but prefers to roam around the house freely during the day. She is friendly with both dogs and cats. She can be a little skittish around young children, especially if they start chasing or screaming at her; however, with slow introductions, we believe she'll be a wonderful family dog. Catalina has never met anyone she doesn't adore, so come meet her and let her steal your heart away!
Sawwyer - 7 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 115 lbs - Heartworm negative - Est available Late July
Sawwyer and Finn were litermates and have always been together and will be adopted out as a bonded pair
Hi, this is Sawwyer (I'm the lighter and bigger of the two of us) and I'm checking in with my brother FInne. We are 6 1/2 years old and have been together since birth. There is nothing like taking on the world with your very own brother. We aren’t very mischievous, but we do like an adventure every now and then. We love to go for car rides and take a swim when we can. We both take treats gently, have never had an accident in the house, aren’t bothered by other dogs and love it when we get tummy rubs. Our foster mom says we have the best manners she has seen, though we could use some help figuring out that leash-thing. Thunderstorms don’t even bother us.
If you have room in your home and your heart for two large, adorable hunks of chocolate, please consider Finne and Sawwyer. They do well with children but not cats and would really like to stay together.

Rowen - 5.2 Year Old Male
Initial intake information: Yellow Male 69 lbs -
Hi friends, my name is Rowen and I am all the best things between a puppy and an adult. I still have some puppy energy and love to play with kids and other dogs, and I also have excellent house manners. I was rescued as a puppy and adopted by a wonderful family that loved me a lot, but unfortunately they could not keep me so now I’m looking for a new family to love me. Foster mom says I’m move-in ready, well behaved, confident, and super sweet. I am house broken and crate trained and I’ll even lay quietly in my crate while you do your zoom thing, I get it, I like zoomies too. I sleep in my own bed at night and do not get on the furniture, on the counters, or dig in the trash. When I get really excited I can jump a little and maybe sometimes mistake your hand for a chew toy, but I’m always gentle. I really love going for walks and do well on leash, I even like to say hello to all the neighborhood dogs. Like a lot of people, I do have allergies but they are controlled with medication. I will faithfully protect you from rogue squirrels and bunnies but I am too tempted to be trusted with kitties. If you ask me, I’m perfect and when we meet I will gladly let you rub my belly.

Cadie - 4.7 Month Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate/Silver Puppy - Early August
Cadie and her brothers came to us very malnourished and with several isses. Cadie had a particularly aggressive hookworm problem that landed her in the hospital and gave us quite a scare. After 5 days in the hospital, many drugs and multiple transfusions, she is an amazing success story. She gained a pound a day her first 6 days back in foster care! In less than 2 weeks she has gone from being too weak to walk to being able to play and keep up with her brother. As she was too weak for vaccines for a while and she has an upcoming checkup and should be able to be adopted and will be available after confirming she can start vaccines again and there are no remaining issues.
Cadie is very much a fighter and has a beautiful sweet spirit. She growing stonger every day, loves giving kisses and is just a love. She is becoming a little demanding when hungry and has learned to use her voice to let me know. She will sleep well in the crate overnight, but sometimes will let you know she would prefer to be with you in the bed. She is pretty close to potty trained with increasingly infrequent mishaps.
This warrior princess will do well in any family and we are excited to see her become a great family dog.
Halo - 6.1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Yellow Female 76.6 lbs -
Halo is as sweet and angelic as her name suggests. When her owner suddenly passed away, his son took her in, but with 2 other dogs and a growing family, he realized that Halo would be better served in a new home. Prior to living with the son’s family, she had been a single dog, but does well with other dogs in the home, as well as children.
Halo was recently diagnosed with a mild case of discoid lupus erythematosus (DLE), a chronic autoimmune disease. Luckily, her prognosis is excellent and is easily managed with a topical steroid on her nose every few days and an Omega 3/Vitamin E that she loves to eat when placed on top of her kibble.
Halo is well mannered and does not jump on visitors that come to the house. She has been through obedience training and knows her basic commands. She sleeps in a bed in our bedroom and sleeps soundly throughout the night. Unlike her naughty foster sister, she waits for you to wake up and does not bother you in the night. She is housetrained and loves to go in the backyard to sniff and “patrol the perimeter” to make sure all is well.
Halo is low key, but she does love her walks! Once she sees the leash come out, she gets visibly excited. She loves to sniff a lot on her walks, so will need someone that is okay with going at her pace. Sometimes that pace is quick, and sometimes she wants to stop and investigate smells.
Halo is not much of a snuggler but loves her belly rubs! She loves car rides and epitomizes the quality of loyalty in dogs. She is super sweet and will make someone a great companion!
Brody - 8.7 Month Old Male
Initial intake information: Chocolate Male 45.6 lbs -
Brody is one handsome devil with a very kind heart. He plays well with his 1 year old (larger chocolate male) roommate and our two 9 and 12 year old sons. He is an active pup and is starting to really enjoy his walks and runs. He may not have gotten many walks in his early days and we are seeing daily improvement on the leash and increased levels of excitement when the leash comes out. He also doesn’t seem to mind being outdoors (and gnawing on a bone during a gentle rain). He enjoys eating lots of food (growing boy) and has picked up the sit command very quickly with the aid of many trainer treats. Brody is smart. We are also working on the come and stay commands. He was recently neutered and we are working on getting all his vaccinations. He is going to be ready in no-time for a loving home looking for a loving companion that likes to be active.
Enid - 1 Year Old Female
Initial intake information: Chocolate Female Weight 43 lbs -
My name is Enid, I’m a sweet and young chocolate female, 43 pounds and probably not going to get much bigger. I was owner surrender from a breeder and lucky for me I never got old enough to have a family. When he gave up the idea of selling pups, DFW Lab Rescue came in and made a true rescue, and they got me out of a bad situation. o you see, the first year of my life has not been much fun, no toys, no AC and no love from humans.
Now all that has changed, I am with a foster and have two fur friends, nice dog bed in doors, and lots of people that come to play with me, I especially love the kids, they are my favorite. Not to mention a back yard to run and play. My two fur friends have taken me in and showed me the rules of living in a house and in no time have taken a liking to this way of life. I have my own crate that I go into on command and sleep without a peep until you come get me in the morning. I also for the first time have my own toys that I only put down when I eat. Yes I still have a lot to learn but I have a lot of love to give. Put me on your wait list, that is, if you have a big screen TV. I love watching the Olympics.
